On this day in 1989, courageous men and women from both East and West Germany united to tear down a wall that stood as a symbol of oppression and failed socialism for more than a quarter of a century.  The eyes of the world watched as a generation of East Germans reclaimed their God-given liberties with each successive swing of their hammers.  Today, we remember those who perished at the hands of totalitarian regimes, and we recommit to ensuring a freer and more just future.
1989年的这一天,勇敢的来自东德和西德的男女们团结起来,拆除了一堵墙,这堵墙象征着压迫和失败的社会主义,持续超过25年多。当东德人的这一代人,持续挥动手中的锤子,重新获得上帝赋予的自由时,全世界的目光都在注视着。今天,我们记住那些在极权政权的统治下丧生的人,我们再次承诺确保有更自由,更公正的未来。

For four decades, East German propaganda touted the existence of a thriving workers’ paradise on their side of the wall.  Yet the dilapidated apartments and depleted grocery stores told a different story.  Parents yearned to give their children more opportunity and purpose in life.  Workers hoped to earn decent wages.  Churchgoers, under the eyes of informants, longed to worship freely according to their own beliefs and conscience.  Under these difficult circumstances, the citizens of East Germany took to heart the words of the influential German poet, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: “He only earns his freedom and his life Who takes them every day by storm.”  Together, united in a common and just cause, they risked their lives for freedom, and in doing so they were the catalyst that lifted the Iron Curtain that had, a generation before, fallen across Europe.
四十年来,东德的宣传一直在鼓吹,在他们(柏林墙)墙的这一边,存在着一个繁荣的工人的天堂。然而,破旧的公寓和衰竭的杂货店却讲述了一个不同的故事。父母们渴望给孩子们更多的生活机会和目地。工人希望赚取体面的薪水。去教堂的人们在告密者的监视下,渴望根据自己的信仰和良心自由的敬拜。在这种困难的情况下,东德市民深深地怀念着具有影响力的德国诗人约翰·沃尔夫冈·冯·歌德(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)的话:“每天经受暴风雨袭击的人,才能拥有自由和生命,”大家在一起,团结在一个共同而公正的事业中,他们冒着生命危险争取自由,用行动开启了掀开铁幕的历程,那是前一代人在欧洲布下的铁幕。

The Cold War has long since passed, but tyrannical regimes around the world continue to employ the oppressive tactics of Soviet-style totalitarianism, which have cast a long, dark shadow over history.  The United States and our allies and partners remain steadfast in our unwavering allegiance to advancing the principles of individual liberty and freedom that have sustained peace and spawned unparalleled prosperity.  Let the fate of the Berlin Wall be a lesson to oppressive regimes and rulers everywhere:  No Iron Curtain can ever contain the iron will of a people resolved to be free.
冷战已经过去很久了,但是世界各地的专制政权继续采用苏联式极权主义的压迫手段,这在历史上蒙上了长长的阴影。美国以及我们的盟友和伙伴们,坚定不移的不懈的推动促进维持和平,并带来空前繁荣的个人自由和自由原则。让柏林围墙的命运成为各地压迫政权和统治者的教训:任何铁幕都无法遏制争取自由的人民的钢铁般的意志。

On the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, I congratulate the German people on the tremendous strides that have been made in reuniting their country and in rebuilding the former East Germany.  We will continue working with Germany, one of our most treasured allies, to ensure that the flames of freedom burn as a beacon of hope and opportunity for the entire world to see.
在柏林墙倒塌30周年之际,我祝贺德国人民在其国家统一和重建前东德方面所取得的巨大进步。我们将继续与我们最宝贵的盟友之一德国合作,以确保自由之光闪耀,成为全世界都能看到的希望和机遇的灯塔。
